Almost a week into the 18th season of Celebrity Big Brother and the votes are already being cast as to who’s the early favourite to claim victory, with Christopher Biggins raging into pole position.
What Are The Odds has deciphered the who’s who of this year’s Celebrity Big Brother house in a bid to see who might emerge as champion, as well as who might be next for the evictions chop, per bet365.
It’s been almost a decade since actor Biggins was elected as winner of I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here in 2007, and he’s currently listed at 13/8 (2.63) to add the Celebrity Big Brother gong to his trophy cabinet this year.
However, Biggins may well have lost himself a few fans this week after the Mirror reported many didn’t take kindly to his remarks regarding bisexuality as being “the worst type” of sexuality and that people of that inclination merely didn’t want to “admit they’re gay.”
That drop in popularity could open the door for Geordie Shore socialite and current second-favourite Marnie Simpson to excel at 7/1 (8.00), joint alongside Ricky Norwood and singer Samantha Fox.
At the other end of the spectrum, a female winner looks unlikely as Mob Wives star Renee Graziano, singer Aubrey O’Day and presenter Saira Khan are each floating out at 40/1 (41.00), while ex-husband to Anthea Turner, Grant Bovey, is the biggest underdog to win, priced at 66/1 (67.00).

Next on the chopping block
And speaking of Bovey, the businessman is the major favourite to be the first character sent out of the Celebrity Big Brother exit after being nominated alongside radio DJ James Whale at the first hurdle.
While Whale is something of an underdog to get voted out this week at 4/1 (5.00), Bovey is as low down in the odds as 1/7 (1.14), meaning he looks almost certain to be packing his bags this Friday.
